A people who lived almost exclusively on the tip of the Hamakar peninisula south of the Kotthorns and ending at Cape Manakea, the Hamakua were a mostly peaceful, seafaring culture who plied the waves of the Nakalani. Famed through the known world for their songs and poetry, the Hamakuans fared less well on the field of battle, succumbing to an invasion by their ancient rivals, the Trilui, and only survived in a rather weak, depopulated successor state: Hanakahi. Around this time, perhaps tens of thousands of Hamakuans emigrated, primarily to the state of Faron in Helsia. Many centuries later, Hanakahi itself fell victim to an invasion by the much larger and more powerful Kothari Exatai, which rules the Hamakuan homeland to this day.
